Little Gentlemen’s Croquet & Tea Party

little men croquet outdoor party

Tea parties aren’t just for little debutantes, and since Lauren Borquez of Capes & Crowns is a mother of two little boys, she wanted to create something that they could enjoy as well! In argyle vests, bow ties and the cutest paige boy hats, the boys got all dressed up for this Little Gentlemen’s Croquet & Tea Party, complete with croquet-inspired treats, teal tea sets and sweet vintage details. While I’m sure these little gents showed their manners at the table, boys will be boys when whacking the croquet mallet! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Argyle mustache & tea cup cake pops, argyle chocolate covered Oreos + croquet & argyle bow tie cookies
– Cupcakes matching the likeness of each little gentleman + tea pot & argyle vest topped cupcakes
– A cake perfectly matching the occasion with an argyle vest & bow tie + a tea cup topper filled with croquet mallets
– DIY sewed ‘Little Gentlemen’ table top + button & twine decorated ‘Gents’ blocks

PARTY DETAILS as told by Lauren

I love little boys. Having two little guys myself, that constantly keep me inspired, I wanted to do something that celebrated little gentleman in a new way. I hosted an all boys tea party for our little lads. It was full of argyle, croquet, and manly flavored french macarons!
